I started with blisters on my right arm that resembled

I started with blisters on my right arm that resembled poison ivy. That seemed to spread rapidly to my arms and torso, and a few spots on my legs. I have had 2 rounds of antibiotics and steroids. Now the blisters have turned to large welts and itch. Those on my stomach and breast (right side only) are very painful. My doctors are treating me for reaction to medicine. The only new medicine I have been subscribed is Esbriet, which I have been on since May. Could I also have shingles.

I think I may have shingles. I have a rash on my right side of my stomach that spread to my breast and a few bumps on my neck, arms and chest. They hurt like a small blister but not as bad as I heard shingles could be. The bumps itch constantly and they dry up within a couple of days with a scab that looks like chicken pox from my childhood. More red bumps continue to develop. They start out looking like welts and shrink down to a small pox looking bump in a couple of days.

i recently started to get a burning sensation on my first two knuckles of my right hand, started to itch them which has caused a blister to form. i suddenly started to get tingles in both of my arms, more prominent on the same arm as the blister and my skin started to raise/ swell after the tingling subsided and now the raised skin looks like permanent goosebumps and mild burnt skin (to best describe the look of the skin) what is happening
